Default Onward - Audio Issues

Having some issues with my sound system on my Onward.

I am running the Wetsound sound bar powered by the factory 48-12 reducer with a Wetsound 8 sub (30 amp) powered by an Reliance (30 amp) 48-12 reducer. I have an Extreme Team 100ah battery pack.

When I am accelerating the sub will cut out. Everything else keeps working. Lately, the sub acts like it is not getting enough power and works intermittently even when not moving. Have checked for loose wires and everything seems good.

Is it common for a 48-12 reducer to go bad?

Any thoughts on where I should start troubleshooting? Or does anyone have any modification ideas?

Sounds like maybe you need a beefier reducer for the sub.

Is there a beefier reducer out there you would recommend?

Have you tried swapping the soundbar and the sub power to see if the problem follows the sub or stays with the reducer?

Have been doing some research, am starting to wonder if I am getting interference from the controller/motor.

I have the sub and all the wiring in the battery box.

May look to reroute some of the wiring and adding a noise filter...

I have not. I believe the factory Club Car 48-12 reducer is not stout enough to run the sub.
